The Craftsman Utility Knife is a good value

These utility knives are a great value.  I like being able to use a portion of the blade sometimes depending on the thickness of the material I am cutting.  The comfort grip handle helps to get a better grip also.  When I cut roofing shingles I use a non-retractable utility knife because I don't want the blade to collapse while trying to make good time.  Revision 6/12/2010 - Buyer Beware!  These might have been outlawed.

Poor Quality
The soft grip utility knife doesn't live up to the Craftsman name. It is poorly made with little quality control. The item I received has the paint on the Craftsman name smeared. It is loose fitting and the blade has too much up and down give in it. The slide doesn't travel smoothly down the track and hangs easily leaving the blade partially exposed. There are many other better quality utility knives that are cheaper and more functional than this one.

best knife I've had easy blade exchange best part of it too

i purchased this utility knife at the moment i got it best knife I've had it very comfortable to handle plus very easy to exchange blades without tools like other brands. i will be going back to purchase two more. in a push of a heavy duty button it will open and have extra blades inside to replace the worn out ones. i really like this one compared to other ones i have at home. very sturdy and push button very heavy duty.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good utility knife

Bought this knife to open boxes at home and so far it serves its purpose very well. However, I have not used it for heavy duty so I can't comment on that aspect.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cheaper than I expected

Made of what seems to be low quality pot metal and/or plastic. I expected something more heavy-duty. Good design but I've got my doubts about how long it'll last.

A good sharp knife with soft grip

This one does have the feature of retracting the knife back in its handle for safe storage and the feel of the knife is softer compared to other utility knives. It also has spare blades inside I believe.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice knife

The slide knife is nice and easy to handle. What I didn't like was the slide mechanism which was pretty flimsy and cheap for a Craftsman product. The product comes with three blades which are stored inside the unit.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Like the grip on this knife and the fact that it comes with some blades is a big plus. Seems like it would hold up to any abuse sent at it. Would recommend to anyone.

Solid knife

I really like this knife for the price, the only thing I would change is that the thumb button is definitely plastic. I'm worried that it won't last as long as the rest of the body. Guess I'm glad there is a lifetime warranty on it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 6.2-Inch Utility Knife with Soft Grip

I, unfortunately, have several utility knives in my tool box, but this is the one I grab every time I need one! It is well built and comfortable in the hand!

Must have for your toolbox

It comes with 3 blades and you can flip the blade to use the other side. You won't need extra blades for a long time. The soft grip provides a comfortable use. the adjustable blade position allows you secure cuts. the actual item doesn't look that nice as in this page but who cares.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Knife

It took me a while to figure out how to open the knife comfortably. Then I laid the knife in my hand backwards, then I push the button in. "Works for Me" The other way was hard to hold.

OK

I wound up returning it before I used it because it seemed very flimsy/cheap when I took it apart to get a blade, and it was difficult to reassemble (the blades are kept in the handle).

Works Nicely

I have to admit, it looks like it is put together in China, but I've put it through a beating and it is still working great. The grips make it pretty comfortable to apply heavy pressure. Pretty easy to change out blades too.

Craftsman Utility Knife

I purchased this Craftsman utility knife to replace an old utility knife.  The blade locking position stays locked even with a fair amount of pressure when cutting.  The locking positions could better a little better offering more cutting blade lengths.  It comes with three total blades and has a nice push release to replace the old blade.  The case is durable for when it is dropped or stepped on.  I like the fact that you do not have to remove a screw to replace the blade.  Just be careful as the push button is plastic and may break.   

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent Knife

The craftsman 94832 utility knife is pretty good for the lower cost knifes on the market. The snap together is a nice feature and allows quick blade changes. However, after repeaded use the latching mechanizum does wear a bit and it does not stay tightly together. Probably more than suffient for the average homeowner, but the everyday contractor might need something more robust. Overall pretty good for the money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Feels nice and works but has one big flaw.

The handle feels nice, the blade goes in and out nicely.

But the blade is very lose! It moves around more than any utility knife that I have ever had.

This may not be a mjaor issue in most apllications but if you need to do precise cutting, do not buy this knife.
